Something new for all families attending Tour de Gap this year, an all-new Kids’ Krit, and it’ll be back next year! Continue reading “New for 2019! Kids’ Krit”
Put it on your calendar today – Saturday, July 27th and Sunday, July 28th, 2019: this year’s edition of one of Texas’ premiere summer rides. This year registration will include a BBQ lunch for all Saturday ride registrants. And we’re bringing back the Steamboat Mountain Challenge Time Trial on Sunday along with the awards presentation and light brunch at Main Street Station in Buffalo Gap.
As you know, we survey what the participants in the Tour have to say every year, and we listen. Several have asked for a few more miles for the middle distance route, so we’re introducing a new middle distance ride: 31.6 miles, or 50K. It adds about 4 miles to the beautiful climb through Lemons Gap, then loops around Griffith Lake and rejoins the route. Here are the links to the large route maps:

Tour de Gap 2018 Routes are ready to roll with a new starting line for Sunday!
Saturday July 27:
The 100K Metric Century makes its return, plus an upgrade of the medium length route to 31.6 miles (50K). The 11 mile route will be the same. Remember the start times are a little different this year year, 7:30 a.m. for the 100K, and 8:00 a.m. for the 50K and 11 mile rides. Registration closes at 7:15 a.m. for the 100K, and 7:40 a.m. for the shorter rides.
Sunday July 29:
STEAMBOAT MOUNTAIN CHALLENGE TIME TRIAL 7.5 MILES
The 2019 Time Trial course will be slightly different from last year’s due to road construction. It will approach CR650 from the south rather than the north. But don’t worry, it’s still tough!
Steamboat Mountain Challenge first rider off at 8:30 a.m. Sunday.
Please note the starting line for Sunday will again be at Main Street Station in Buffalo Gap. A complimentary continental breakfast will be served after the ride and before the prizes are presented. Main Street Station is at the intersection of Litel (FM 613) and Main Street, on the south side of BGap after the FM 89 turnoff to the Abilene State Park.
* All Saturday routes will close at 1:30 pm. *
